I'm pretty worried - I have a 9 year old daughter who has had recurrent UTIs since the age of 5. Some daytime incontinence and never has had a dry night (that's actually hereditary though.)
Anyway, no one, including pediatrician, Urology nurse practitioner and one urologist ever even suggested this condition or the tests to rule it out. But after reading more about it, the symptoms really do make sense.
I guess because her symptoms started at age 5, hers would be considered 'secondary VUR". Do most kids need surgery for this type?
A very scared mom
They weren't present at birth, so does that mean she had an infection that caused secondary VUR?
